Winter Band Concert Postponed

The Winter Band Concert tonight has been canceled due to bad weather. The safety of our students and families is our top priority and the weather is too questionable right now.

The students have been working hard to prepare and many of you have been excited to hear them perform. We will reschedule the concert for January and will let you know the exact date as soon as possible.

Wynton Marsalis in Concert

This coming Tuesday, October 11, Grammy-award winning trumpet player, Wynton Marsalis, will be performing at the Hult Center in Eugene. Marsalis is considered by many to be the most outstanding trumpet player today. He will be accompanied by the Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra, one of the world’s leading jazz ensembles.

This is a great opportunity to hear world class musicians perform in a great venue. Hardly anything motivates young musicians as well as enjoying a live performance from professional musicians. I highly recommend going to this performance, if at all possible! The Hult Center does offer discount prices for students, so the cost is quite reasonable for such a high caliber performance. For more information, please see the Hult Center website.
